Storyline Heading
Straight-laced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan lives by the book, both at work and at home. But Portia is caught off guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school headed by her former college classmate, the freewheeling John Pressman. Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah, his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago. Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted -- but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - While overall a comedy, this film pairing Tina Fey and Paul Rudd has more serious overtones than expected. Language and subject matter make the film too mature for children, who would not be interested in the first place.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Admission is a serviceable, sporadically entertaining motion picture that has been aggressively developed for mainstream consumption.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'Admission' has some sublime moments, most of them involving Fey and Rudd dancing around their inevitable romance. The problem is in the foundation.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good 'Admission' is a serious film about life, relationships and growing up, with a gloss of humor.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average 'Admission' still has considerable entertainment value as a flawed vehicle for Fey.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Every spring, high school seniors anxiously await letters of college admission that will affirm and encourage their potential. At Princeton University, admissions officer Portia Nathan (Tina Fey) is a gatekeeper evaluating thousands of applicants. Year in and year out, Portia has lived her life by the book, at work as well as at the home she shares with Princeton professor Mark (Michael Sheen). When Clarence (Wallace Shawn), the Dean of Admissions, announces his impending retirement, the likeliest candidates to succeed him are Portia and her office rival Corinne (Gloria Reuben). For Portia, however, it's business as usual as she hits the road on her annual recruiting trip.

On the road, Portia reconnects with her iconoclastic mother, Susannah (Lily Tomlin). On her visit to New Quest, an alternative high school, she then reconnects with her former college classmate, idealistic teacher John Pressman (Paul Rudd) -- who has recently surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), a gifted yet very unconventional New Quest student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption years ago while at school. Jeremiah is about to apply to Princeton.

Now Portia must re-evaluate her personal and professional existences, as she finds herself bending the admissions rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the future she thought she always wanted -- and in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.
